These images were first taken from HD video I shot with a very low shutter speed and moving the camera around for motion blurs of neon on Fremont street in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I then pulled frames out of the video stream that I felt worked well as abstract stills.
I then compiled them back together into this slide show with a slight Ken Burns motion effect.
The original set of frames can be seen in the “vegas blur” gallery here.

We’re always pleased when Skip returns to aamora. His photography is remarkable for its beautifully vivid color, incisive composition and varied locales, including Mexico, Guatemala and South Africa. You will be well rewarded by checking out Skip’s work at skiphunt:visualartist .

the colours and the transition of the images are magic .. nicely laid out !
What a celebration! Thank you, Skip for the wonderful and wild ride through time and space.
Color does cheer up the day! Beautiful to see on a day when snow is falling at my house!
I am a sucker for abstract photography & your imagery is a most tasty lollipop indeed : )
WOW……what a delight. Here I am at work & after viewing “Vegas Blur”, I feel refreshed, as if I truly did go on a “Trip” – love it! 😛
Thanks! One time I was there on a motorcycle and left the strip/downtown area for a couple afternoons. Was surprised to find most of the rest of Vegas was pretty much like anywhere else. So strange how it feels like there’s a completely different city within another city.
:~) Amazing take on my hometown! love it!
Thanks Man! Glad you dig. Most just look at it and say “Whaa?… Why?”
Thanks 🙂 I think the problem was… that I wasn’t “holdin'” and tried to emulate the effects instead. 😉
I really love that first hyper-zizzle you get in Vegas… that is, before it’s muted by the loss of funds. 😉 Thanks Alexis!
Thank YOU Ms. Lamont! I love living blurs.. I mean… when you think about it… that’s what most of life is when you try to remember an event. You can pick out detailed moments out of the motion, but for the most part it’s mostly a blur.
Thanks for posting it Michael!
Love this Skip! Great music selection too.
That’s exactly what Vegas looks like to me whenever I’m there. I’m glad to know I’m not alone. Thanks, Mr Hunt.
Hyp-notic and Hyp-er cool!
This is like the visual bookend to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: Colour and Exploding in Las Vegas, the good twin.
Love the energy, S Hunt (and Hunter S)…
Cowabunga, Dude! I’m amped from this bitchin’, gnarly, boss, primo, rad slideshow. Dude! You definitely know how to shoot the curl.
